Land Rover tour of Graciosa

The miracle of a full nights undisturbed sleep meant we were refreshed and ready to explore this volcanic island. And no better way to do it via an old dusty land rover which bounced (to the boys squeals of delight) along the sandy paths to volcanic rock arches, magnificent beaches and the small village.

The island is surrounded by white sand stunning beaches, but be warned it is windy here with dust blowing from Africa only 100 miles away which coats everything. The yacht will need a good wash soon!

The sand dunes are covered with 1500 year old tiny white snail shell fossils. A reminder of the islands aquatic past.

Time to lie down on one of those beaches for a few days…šŸ˜šŸ–šŸ˜Ž
